Art and Run

Every sport is also an art, and when our performance becomes artistic, we are excelling.

In my sport this morning I worked through movements that challenged my ranges of motion in the muscles and structures surrounding my hips and shoulders. I observed myself in and out of alignment with efficient bodily structure, and felt the implications for balance. I challenged myself, and made some improvements in form, technique and movement. While there are scores of other movements I want to improve on and excel in within my current focus, I am pleased with any progress. My art and sport challenges me with movements that are not part of my normal base conditioning and training.

After this experience, I went out and ran three miles and some tenths in my Altras. I was more aware of my running form following a session in my sport this morning. I also found myself at a brisker pace than I expected after having denied myself running for three days.
